Coming off a tie for seventh at last week’s Sanderson Farms Championship, just his second start as a PGA Tour regular, Ben Silverman of Thornhill, Ont., shot a two-under 69 to open the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas on Thursday.
That left Silverman tied for 29th and four shots off the lead when play was called due to darkness in Vegas.
One shot behind him was Nick Taylor, who got through 17 holes at one under, which left him tied for 43rd when play was called.
Taylor got to five under through his first 10 holes, but took a double bogey on his 12th hole and bogeys on his 15th and 17th holes before play was called.
